Tongland Abbey Talk

Tongland Abbey Talk

David Devereux will give a talk in October entitled: ‘A tale of two Tongland ruins.’

Venue: Gordon Memorial Hall, Castle Douglas
Time: 2pm
Cost: £5

The former Curator of Kirkcudbright Museum, will give an account of recent archaeological and historical research on Tongland Abbey (founded 1218) and the Tongland Fish House (probably built c .1825). The Abbey also operated a fishery at the Doachs of Tongland, so the exploitation of this important local economic resource might be seen as a common link between the two sites, despite the time gap.

Refreshments will be available.

Non-members are very welcome. Tickets on the door.
